This was a 45 minute tour that took you along the coast of Dubai. We stopped at all important buildings and structures. Our captain (tour guide) had a thoroughly knowledge about Dubai, it's history and architecture, as well as a good knowledge about the sea life. We stopped at a couple of places to take pictures, such as the Atlantis... More

Captain Kevin had our safety as his main concern and delivered an exciting, safe and informative trip.Great value if you have an entertainer voucher.This is a must... More

My friends and I took this tour during rough sea condition . We received no warning neither from the captan nor from the management that the ride might be a problem for the people who are seasick or have any other health issues. So we didn't anticipate any trouble. Ride through marina was nice and beautiful. But as soon as... More

A real great way of seeing and learning a bit more about Dubai. The guy that took us was a fountain of information. Picked up from Dubai Marina which is a great place to have a walk and coffee or meal. In the heat of the day being on the water was lovely and cool. We got to see various... More

We went on a boat trip in Feb 2015 and it was brilliant. Worth every penny and an amazing way to see so much of Dubai in one day.

We took a 90 minute tour starting at 10:30 in the morning. The check in process was great. However, it would have been ideal to collect payments at check in and not when people are down near the boat baking in the hot sun. It took nearly 15 minutes to collect payment when most people arrived 30 minutes early and... More
